Electrify America Announces Collaboration with Love’s Travel Stops
Stations in Arizona, Florida, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Utah featuring 28 chargers
OKLAHOMA CITY, Aug. 18, 2020 - Electrify America, the largest open direct current (DC) fast-charging network in the U.S., today announced it will work with Love's Travel Stops, the nation's industry-leading travel stop network, to bring public ultra-fast electric vehicle (EV) charging stations to seven locations in six U.S. states.
The seven charging stations, located in Oklahoma, New Mexico, Utah, Florida, New York and Arizona, will have a combined 28 EV chargers and be available for public use by early 2021 - with five locations already open. The most recent Love's station opening in Salina, Utah, helped complete a cross-country route of Electrify America chargers spanning from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C.
"As we continue building charging stations at accessible sites, Love's Travel Stops was a perfect fit because of its convenient locations near major highways," said Rachel Moses, senior manager for site acquisition, development and strategy at Electrify America. "Providing EV drivers with the opportunity to charge their vehicles at Love's locations will help instill confidence for longer interstate trips, and can encourage more consumers to consider making the switch to electric."
Depending on the location, Love's customers will have access to chargers ranging in power from 150 kilowatt (kW) to 350 kW. Electric vehicles capable of accepting a 350 kW charge can add up to 20 miles of range per minute, helping alleviate range anxiety that many consumers associate with EV road trips. Through these installations at Love's Travel Stops, Electrify America is helping EV drivers charge up quickly and get back on the road with confidence.
"Our goal is to provide all drivers with safe, convenient places to stop and refuel - and that includes the growing number of electric vehicle drivers," said Frank Love, co-CEO of Love's. "We're committed to initiatives and solutions that reduce emissions, and excited to add EV charging stations at our locations."
